NOLA to Havana – Historic Cuba Hoy Press Conf. with OTRA at N.O. Int’l Airport (March 14, 2015)



Calling All Salsa Dancers (and anyone interested)! Sam Price (of OTRA) contacted me earlier this week about this SPECIAL event on Saturday, March 14, 2015. I received this email today from Nathalie Gomes Adams (of Dance Quarter) with full details (below). Let me know if you are planning on going. Would Love to get ride. Thanks! Peace & LOVE, Cherylyn:

Be a part of history! Tomorrow Saturday, March 14, join OTRA for a historic direct departure flight to Cuba. This is a historic opportunity, as this will be the first nonstop flight from New Orleans to Havana since 1958. Spread the word!!!! Invite Latin dancers. The band and the organizers would love to have dancers as part of the celebration. LOTS of National & International Press (CNN, BBC, etc.).

This event is part of The Cuba Hoy Conference, hosted by the International Cuba Society and At the Threshold
